One in every 10 women in India suffers from PCOS. I was diagnosed with PCOS in 2008. The usual symptoms – acne, hirsutism, missed periods etc. But, I was not overweight, which is perhaps the most common symptom. I was put on a lot of allopathic medicines – metformin, estradiol tablets etc. The hormones artificially induce bleeding every 21st day. I had had enough! I switched to homeopathy. Homeopathy was good. It cured the underlying causes instead of the symptoms. Over a year, I slowly started getting regular periods and my condition improved. I took an ultrasound scan to confirm that PCOS had gone. Yay! But, then in 2011 I started missing my cycles. I took a scan to find that it was PCOS again. Sigh!
I did my bit of research to discover the horrid fact that PCOS can be treated, but not completely cured. So, did that mean I had to keep popping pills for the rest of my life? I was very dispirited. I started searching all online forums and sites created to help women with PCOS. I was on the lookout for natural remedies because I did not want to continue relying on medicines. I came across many options – fenugreek, saw palmetto, chaste tree, milk thistle, licorice etc. I dug deep into each one of them. Most of them had side effects like putting on weight, external estrogen etc.
